Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Art Cards 5 X 7

A while back I had made some substrates on diet coke cardboard. Here are some of the pieces of art that I have done over the past few weeks. I decided to work a little bigger in a 5" X 7" format since I tend do a lot of ATC's. I have always had trouble going outside of the lines. So my plan is to do a lot of work prior to "cutting" the shape of my art. It makes going outside of the lines a lot easier!
After building up the layers I have added images, stamps, and 3D embellishments. These are very fun and fast to do. I like the sense of completing some pieces of art as some of my quilts take months to finish.
